One Year From Today: July 4th, 2018

One year from today on July 4th, 2018: I will not be watching Harry Potter, I will be watching fireworks with loved ones. I will not be living at home, I will be far far away (wherever my Prius takes me). I will not be […]

Being Practical Is Overrated, Let’s Be Dreamers

Jack Kerouac once said, “All human beings are also dream beings. Dreaming ties all mankind together.” I am a dreamer, an optimist, an idealist, a stargazer to the MAX, and I (naively) expect everyone around me to also be dreamers, although not always to the same degree. […]

The Government Made Me Hate The Environment

Heartbreak: The Good, The Bad, & The Psychotic

Leandra Medine’s ‘No Rules’ Approach to Fashion Has Changed The Way I View The World

I have loved clothes and shopping from the moment I bought my first Abercrombie denim skirt. I was pretty daring back in the day, meticulously planning all yellow ensembles and not giving a second thought as to whether other people would like what I wore […]

I Love Makeup, But I Will Never Buy Lipstick
